Separare – Núcleo de Pesquisa em Cromatografia is located at the Chemistry Department of the Federal University of São Carlos. The nuclei is composed of two laboratories: the Antonio Pinto Loureiro Filho and the recently inaugurated instrumental core.

Separare can provide strong support to pharmaceutical and drug development researches including state-of-the-art sample preparation by 2D LC-MS/MS, and procedures for chiral and achiral separation at analytical and multimilligram scale. With highly skilled personnel and assorted experimental capabilities, it can support a wide variety of interdisciplinary research. Training courses for students and faculty in the realm of separation science can also be provided.
